Gardening: Woodland Hellebore Planter

WATCH: They are one of the first blooms of spring and thanks to the unseasonably warm weather in B.C., hellebores are everywhere

Displaying stunning flowers in a plethora of different colours and designs, hellebores have become must-have plants for the winter and early spring garden.

Most hellebores thrive in organic, well-draining soil in part shade – perfect in a dappled shade or woodland location. Combine your favourite hellebores with other shade-tolerant perennials to create your own woodland planter.
